I used Eastwood's window cleaning kit, not a powered polisher but my 64 had 40 years of barn storage build up on the glass, this stuff cleaned them off and was nice and smooth afterward. I like the way it worked for me but not sure if it's what you need. I have seen YouTube videos where people were using the same polishing compound that is used to buff out the paint, that may be more what you nee

I'm not much into those details but I think mine is all one cable with a hole built in to mount to the body then it goes on to the generator.

I sent him an email about the Springfest in Helen, close to him and a great venue to sell to people who know what to do with them.

I think I'm in the minority but my 64 has 15 inch wheels.

Wonder if they'll be at the convention. All the REAL vendors will.

I've seen people run the harness strap back and bolt it under the rear seat cushion using those seat belt points. I haven't seen a bar in a Corvair without it also being a roll bar.

I'm sure that's meant for the V8 conversion cars.

Awesome Cole, glad it's still coming along, it's tough to make time with so much going on. My strategy is to get it running at least enough to move around the yard, pushing is a pain, then move to getting it on the road, fun part, then worry about making it pretty. Will you make Helen this year?

It should be pretty sporty with the LS.

ASD relay? I saw that on the jeep forum, I looked briefly and it looks like the same relay as the one beside it so was thinking I'll swap them and see if anything changes.

I added discs to front only on my 66 and didn't changed the MC, my pedal is good and my brakes work great.

I would say that your luck is worse than mine but it took me at least ten years to get mine going but I wasn't as diligent as you are, I had another one that was a runner at the time so I guess I didn't have proper motivation. I'm rooting for you and I know you'll love it, keep at it.

It's on another tank of gas now, really no change so it's not looking like bad gas. It is really isolated to the RPM range from 1400-2200, anything below or above that is fine and it's ok in that range with a very light pedal. I have a Throttle Position Sensor I can put on it, doubt that's it but I swapped it out a while back when it had a different problem. The Crank Position Sensor crossed my m

I use FB, I can't see how any info I have on there can be of any real use, it narrows me down to a city, no street address, phone number, account number, never any travel specifics, just seems dumb to post to the world that we've just left on a three week vacation, come see if there's anything you want. It is interesting to keep up with people I grew up with and it's actually the easiest way to g

The TPS has merit, perhaps it's not seeing the throttle open until it moves further but it the only thing that seems to make a difference is RPM. Crank triggering?

Plugs are same as originally there except not wore out. It's coded random so it's not just one cylinder, it has different code if it were only one cylinder such as p0302 for misfire on 2 so doubtful it's valve or coil. I'm leaning towards vacuum leak, have looked some but nothing obvious. It has to be something messing with the air fuel mixture between idle and 2000 RPM. At idle it opens a sep

As far as I can tell there's no filter but it runs fine under heavy acceleration and anything over 2000 RPM is good ran 75 MPH this morning without a stumble so I expect it's getting fuel.

I've used about half the gas so far, thinking about putting a can of Seafoam in it when it gets to about a quarter tank.

It's a 2004 Jeep Liberty with 3.7 V6. This problem started within 60 seconds of filling the tank so the instant thought is bad gas. After a couple days of driving it I have a good feel for the symptoms. It has P0300 code which is random misfire. The spark plugs were original with 189,000 miles so swapped then, didn't expect it to fix it but it was time. It idles fine, the misfire occurs under

I've seen blasting with dry ice pellets, only thing to clean up is the crud that comes off the part.

I'm up in winter down in summer, it's inside if I'm not using it. One year I didn't raise it until December and had to give it a day to stretch back before i could latch it, then it was back down for the parade. I'd leave it down and if you don't have to put it up for rain latch it for a few days every six months to keep it stretched.

A lot of people tow using the bumper or bumper mounting holes, seems like what you are talking about is nearly the same. May want something more secure after getting it inside the trailer but it shouldn't take much to pull it into the trailer.
